The band that did this demo is worth checking out by the way. Made an awesome EP last year: http://www.darkentriesrecords.com/store ... ehicle-ep/
Yes--it is a great EP. They are making some very cool early German new wave sounding material and with great production.
To me it sounds very much like sq-80

It has a monster architecture(stolen from sq\esq??), but sounds rather digital. And he says this is his best synth by now, I hope he's not talking about the sound.

I cant believe im saying this but im warming to DSI , it sounds good fresh, unlike moog thread going further into offering new polysynths, i can see studios buying this synth serious players its ok.

I never heard anything about analog oscillators. Anyone know what the scoop is?

This thing looks superhot, and the demos are already sounding good to me--seems to cover analog, and more importantly, interesting digital sounds. I will definitely be looking forward to getting the full specs.
Do you even post on vse bro?

Id like to ask Mr.Smith, if this is such a great analog polysynth, best he ever made, why he decided to record it with an external FX for this demo??

According to InhaltVideo on that youtube thread, there's no external effects.

Nowhere does it say the oscillators are analog...
